Ever since Bravo created The It Factor in 2002, the network has been churning out reality shows like they’re practically free to make (because they are). While many of these shows have made their stars into household names—in all the households that matter, at least—others have drifted into obscurity, seemingly…
Picture the best and most beautiful summer’s day: A slight breeze, medium humidity, the sun shining on only part of your face as you sit half-in, half-out of the shade. Perhaps there’s a popsicle in your hand, or maybe an iced beverage. A car blows past you on the street, its windows wide open. What song do you hear?
Meghan Markle has already stepped into her role as the Duchess of Sussex with the ease, grace, and dignity befitting a Suits star, but we at Dirtcast are not quite ready to let these beautiful, British nuptials go into that good night.
With this year’s Met Gala, in all its heretical glory, solidly in our rearview, we—your humble DirtCast hosts—decided to take a closer look at this curious cultural institution and its role in the celebrity ecosystem.
Like with any age demographic, it’s hard to characterize teens with one blanket description. Some are smart and some are dumb. Some are polite and some gather in groups and heckle you (okay, me) on the subway. There are those, like the Parkland teenagers, who are informed and brave activists and then there are others…
Horror movies—schlocky, gory, full of jump scares, and shrieking violins—are rarely “good” by critical standards. But now that Get Out’s Jordan Peele won an Oscar, and Jim Halpert’s The Quiet Place is set to spend another week at the top of the box office charts, it is time to take a closer look at the genre.
This week’s very special episode of Dirtcast comes via listener request!
It is difficult to remember a time before home renovation shows dominated the airwaves, but stretch the limts of your memory all the way back to the early 2000s, when a little show called Trading Spaces made its debut.
BenDeLaCreme’s charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent shines as bright as the top of the Chrysler Building. So naturally, we had to sit her down for a chat.
If American teen TV isn’t juicy enough and British teen TV is too real, please divert your attention to the romantic and melodramatic stylings of the K-drama and prepare to be taken on a journey.
What do Daniel Kaluuya, Gilly and Gendry from Game of Thrones, and Dev Patel all have in common?
The Academy Awards are imminent, breathing down our collective necks with their gowns and speeches and glad-handing, and we at Dirtcast are ready and willing and able to discuss every single facet!
“This’ll be fun, we can talk a lot of smack,” SallyAnn Salsano, self-identified Guidette said at the start of our rollicking conversation about her reality show empire that includes Jersey Shore and the forthcoming and insanely entertaining (sorry!) Winter Break: Hunter Mountain. I am happy to report that she was…
it’s a very special day! A day where love in all its various forms is celebrated, for eating chocolate, and for remembering that time in the early 2000s when pop-lebrities loudly declared that they would wait...for sex.
After a long and restorative recharge, DirtCast is back and better (maybe) than ever!
It’s the holidays, which means it’s the time of the year when many of us will be turning to the bottle—either to complement our Christmas dinners or make it through our hometown visits. So what celebrity wine (because why drink a pleb wine when you have the celebrity option?) should you turn to first?
Mariah Carey is many things to many people: mother, daughter, occasional PR disaster, and, above all, an elusive chanteuse. But is she the Queen of Christmas? We at Dirtcast know the answer in our hearts, but felt it necessary to interrogate what has now become a central question during the holiday season for…
Every day across this great nation of ours, celebrities fuck up. They write a tweet or make a movie or say something stupid on a podcast that offends many, and once that offense has been noted by the public record, the newly-chastened and penitent celebrity pens an apology.
Perhaps you spent Thanksgiving eating food, buying stuff, and ignoring all your things, like emails, text messages and new podcasts. If that happens to be the case, now seems like a great time to catch up! In the second part of our plump and juicy 2-part interview with Mark Cronin, father of celeb-reality TV, the…
